Press Release 5

Quito, April 25th, 2021

Welcome Aboard!

On behalf of Ecuatoriana Airlines, we extend our congratulations to President-Elect Guillermo Lasso Mendoza on winning the Ecuadorian Presidential Elections held on 4-11-2021. Ecuatoriana is poised to work alongside the new administration in stimulating, growing, and fortifying the Ecuadorian economy and tourism. Ecuatoriana is committed and looks forward to working with and having an open dialog with the new government as we represent Ecuador within its borders and in the international spectrum.

Ecuatoriana Airlines will introduce branding and identity on Thursday, April 29th, 2021. This event will be 100% virtual, and everyone is invited to partake in the launching of our logo. We hope you will share this with family and friends and join us on this unforgettable day. More information will be available on our social media platforms soon.

It is a pleasure to tell you that we are advancing steadily, convinced that the country needs to revolutionize its aviation forever. Despite the current situation of the global health crisis, we have continued working generating products such as the «Founders Club» with only 10,000 places, «Ambassadors Club» our frequent flyer program, and our «Ecuatoriana Boutique» with the best products. This and more we will inform in detail the day of the launch of our corporate identity on April 29, virtually (subject to changes).

Likewise, we continue in our certification process aimed at obtaining our AOC. Although we have not been able to progress in this regard as we would have liked due to the different current restrictions, we continue working towards this objective.

Finally, we want to mention that after careful planning, research, and analysis, Ecuatoriana Airlines has decided to also opt for the Boeing 717-200 aircraft for its second phase of operations. The 717-200 is a twin-engine jet with a capacity for 115 passengers configured on three classes of service, and thanks to its operational performance, it fits perfectly with the geography of Ecuador and the region. Additionally, we will operate with the Dash 8-Q400 turboprop domestically and also on some cross-border flights. The Dash 8-Q400 has a capacity of up to 78 passengers in a configuration of two classes of service, being ideal for domestic short-haul flights of less than 1.5 hours in duration, and its low operating costs will allow us to transfer these savings to our passengers.

Thank You, please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to “Welcoming you onboard very soon!”
